A: I have not always lived in Portland, but I do consider Northeast Portland to be home.

Q: How do you like to spend your personal time?

A: Traveling, trying new restaurants, and home-bodying with my husband. I also enjoy ceramics, playing with my dog, happy hours with friends, and reading lots of short stories and novels.

Q: What are some professional and/or personal pursuits that you are passionate about?

A: I am privileged to be a registered nurse and work at a bustling federally-qualified health center a few blocks away from Adorn on Division. I am passionate about harm reduction and unconditional positive regard. I am also passionate about art and design – I’m currently loving making ceramic art objects.

STYLE Q&A

Q: How did you first hear about Adorn?

A: A friend brought me in – the ever stylish Kirsten!

Q: What do you love most about Adorn?

A: Easily the people. Fun, personal, warm and highly service oriented. I love you guys!

Q: What is your favorite Adorn piece?

A: Usually my most recent acquisition. Right now, a tie between my red Calou clogs and Mariella Pilato turquoise pendant.

Q: A trend you are loving for this season?

A: Clogs? I never stop with them, but I hear it’s a trend for fall. Is it? For summer, I love all the cotton gauze and double gauze people are using.

Q: Where do you get your style inspiration? 

A: I get inspired by street style, contemporary art & design, and iconic artists and celebrities of the 1950s through the 1970s.

Q: What is your favorite article of clothing from your closet?

A: Least worn (and most treasured) is a long, hooded, deep navy mohair coat my husband gave me. It’s gorgeous. I was told by the salesman it would be fine to wear in the rain — which it’s not of course. Mohair!

Q: Favorite denim fit?

A: MOTHER high-waist. Done.

Q: Goofiest fashion trend you have participated in?

A: Around ’89 or ’90, one white loafer paired with one black loafer… Unless lace-trimmed biker shorts under boxers beat that!

Q: Heels or flats?

A: Flats with a lift.

Q: What did your wedding dress look like?

A: My wedding dress was cocktail length with a boned bodice and flouncy skirt.

Q: What are your three must-have items on any vacation?

A: Over the swimsuit – a short gauze muumuu. Lots of sunscreen. Lots of books.
